As soon as the newly appointed Pakistan head coach Misbah-ul-Haq decided to scrap biryani and all oil-based red meat food from the players’ menu, social media took a dig at the Green Brigade which has been considered one of the most ‘unfit’ cricketing team globally.
In the recently concluded 2019 ICC World Cup, questions were raised over the Pakistan team’s diet and fitness before former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar also termed skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed as ‘fat and unfit’.
Moreover, Pakistani fans had alleged that the team was spotted eating junk food ahead of their crucial match against arch-rivals India.
Reportedly Misbah took the decision to help his team achieve the much required fitness. However, netizens trolled the development through their jokes and memes on various social media platforms.
Here’s a look at some of the tweets -
